Fifteen-year-old Alexandra Spencer’s life wasn’t supposed to turn out this way. She wasn’t supposed to go on trial for a crime she did not commit. She wasn’t supposed to be found guilty. And she wasn’t supposed to be sent to Elder Grey Detention Centre, a place of horrors many don’t survive.
She is however, supposed to be the daughter of the wealthiest, most influential man in the post-apocalyptic city of New Phoenix.
But apparently, she isn’t.
As Alex struggles to cope with her new life, an act of friendship ends in tragedy. When someone she thought was an enemy pulls her from her despair, Alex discovers that old friends cannot be trusted, prejudice is another word for fear, and trust, not blood ties, make a family.
